Rock Removal Project Resumes
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 16, 2018
The rock removal project west of the tunnels near Cody is scheduled to resume Monday.
Traffic will be allowed to flow without stops through the project area between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on regular working days to allow daily commuters to make their way to Cody and home again in the late afternoon.
Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Todd Frost of Cody says the maximum delay time during non-commuting hours will be 20 minutes, and traffic will be controlled by flaggers and pilot vehicles.
He says the contractor, Wilson Brothers Construction of Cowley, will be working in two areas at once — by the west end of the long tunnel, and also on the same slope where rock excavation was done before the winter closure, installing rock bolts and rock fall barriers.
The $1.68 million project involves removal of more than 10,000 cubic yards of rock.
